Flying Tips & TricksHow do I find my flight number?
  • It can be found in your itinerary, which will be emailed to you when you've completed your booking. If you're not too sure what to look for, browse the document for a code made up of numbers and letters. The first one to two letters and single figure are the IATA airline code, which represents the name of your airline. This is followed by one, two, three or four digits — your flight number.
How early can you check bags for a flight?
  • To have plenty of time to drop your baggage, clear customs and turn up at your boarding gate, head to the airport approximately three hours before an international flight. For a domestic flight, show up around two hours before. Even if you've already picked your seat and received your boarding pass online, it's worth noting that there are closing times for baggage drop. It's an hour before departure for international flights, and 45 minutes if you're flying domestically. Of course, times can vary between airlines, so check these details when you book.
